- Building Undergraduates through Inclusive Leadership (BUILD): Through a partnership between David Douglas School District and Unite Oregon and funded through a grant from Meyer Memorial Trust, we’re
excited to welcome Darrell Wade to David Douglas School District as a new BUILD Parent Organizer. He will be working with parents at Floyd Light, Ron Russell, and Alice Ott middle schools. For more than 20 years, Darrell has worked to serve marginalized communities through direct service, community engagement and organizing. He brings passion and excitement about engaging and mobilizing parents around equitable school policy and practices from a unique cultural lens. The BUILD (Building Undergraduate through Inclusive Leadership Development) program will equip 15-20 parents in each school by offering leadership development trainings, school-based events, and college exposure activities to ensure they can better navigate the educational system with the result of providing their students with college and career readiness.
